The rhizome (root) of turmeric ( Curcuma longa Linn.) not only acts as antioxidant for scleroderma but also helps to treat acid reflux or dyspepsia (heartburn).
However, there is some suggestion for using that turmeric may cause an upset stomach, especially in high doses or if given over a long period of time. Acid reflux has been reported in patients being treated for stomach ulcers. Since turmeric is sometimes used for the treatment of heartburn or ulcers, caution may be necessary in some patients. Nausea and diarrhea have also been reported.
For my opinion and experience in treating my mom with phytonutrient,the various sources with low dose and not given over a long period of time is the best. That is the reason why I try to search for a various sources of antioxidant for you.
I would like to confirm again that my mom eats the various sources of antioxidant and gets well. I hope that you get well too.
